When did Hawn & Russell meet

They aren’t married but are parents to a son named Wyatt Russell, 33. Hawn and Russell met while filming the Disney movie, “The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band” in 1966. However, they didn’t start dating immediately.

During a past BBC Radio 4 interview, the actress revealed that when they initially met for the first time, she was 21 and he was 16. They didn’t start dating then because she thought he was too young.
